Getting around or getting connected
The Washington County Bus Service allows all residents in Rural Washington County a way to get around. The bus connects customers to the Hillsboro Transit center via pickups in Banks and North Plains.
Connect to the WAVE
The Community Bus serves the daily stops in Banks and North Plains in addition to Tillamook County Transportation District WAVE buses. Ride Connection pays the fare for riders traveling to/from the TriMet connections. Click here to see the WAVE schedule.
